To complement the heavy hitters like Word, Excel and Powerpoint, in 2003 Microsoft created an app for the Office Suite called OneNote. It was designed to help students make lecture notes, create class schedules and organize study material. The app was updated in 2007 and 2010 and got a ton of features added to it such as handwriting and sketching, screenshot capture and autosave, making it a solid notetaking tool for all kinds of users.

So how does one get good pictures out of a phone camera? It’s really not about the megapixels. Let’s forget about the technical specifications of our cameras for a few minutes and check out some simple things we can do to improve our photography, keeping in mind certain scenarios we regularly come across in our daily lives. The real lesson here to be learned here is to adapt. Think about how your shots could be imporved before shooting them and you’ll be taking great pictures in no time.
